CBS / Lycos / Reuters Missionary Pilot Faulted in Peru Shootdown : "The pilot of the missionary airplane, Kevin Donaldson, filed a round-trip flight plan from Iquitos, Peru, to Islandia in the Amazon river on the border with Colombia and Brazil. But he did not refile the plan when he began the return leg of the flight with passengers Jim and Veronica Bowers and their two children, Cory, 6, and adopted baby Charity, 7 months, CBS reported. When the missionary plane was detected by a CIA drug surveillance plane, the Peruvian air force could not find the flight plan and scrambled one of its jets to intercept the aircraft." US officials say that the Peruvian fighter pilot give sufficient warning to the missionary plane before opening fire. Thank goodness for a non-election story.
